    Performance Monitor

    Hi, I've only just read the email "Exploring Windows' Administrative Tools: Part 2" and was particularly interested in the article about performance monitoring. Unfortunately, after following the link as suggested to open the resource monitor. all I got was a virtually blank page with the word "configuration" at the top.
    I would appreciate any advice about accessing the resource monitor.
    Thanks

    A quick way: Click the Start Button, type the word "resource" and click on the Resource Monitor link that appears at the top of the menu.

    A long way is to open Computer, then select System Properties from the menu bar at the top. Next, in the System window that opens, select Performance Information and Tools at the bottom or the left hand pane. The Performance Information and Tools Window will open; now select Advanced Tools in the left hand pane and finally select Open Resource Monitor in the list of tools.

    I use the first method.

    Welcome to the Lounge!

    I start it from the Resource Monitor button on the Performance tab of Task Manager.
